WAVE / SURF FREESTYLE
The WAVE is a dedicated wave kite, its ability to fly more forward in the wind window allows the rider to ride deeper into the pocket of the wave than before. Its characteristic ability to drift backwards as you ride towards it, absorbing the line slack, is a feature highly sought after in a wave riding kite.
The Drifter is a dedicated wave/surf freestyle kite, being renowned for its drift stability, precise turning and instant power and depower abilities. Its 3 strut hybrid design has taken it to the podium multiple times on the World Tour Kitesurfing World Championship Tour.
The section is a purebred wave kite designed to be stable, responsive and drift backwards down the line. It has a three strut, lightweight construction that gives it intuitive turning capabilities. Its lightweight design means that you'd really have to try hard to stall this kite, even while dropping in towards it, it simply eats up the slack in the lines and still gives responsive steering. It has the flying characteristics of a truly fantastic wave kite with the construction quality of German engineering.
Yes yes, we do know that this has not been designed as a dedicated wave kite but its performance in the waves is excellent so we just had to! The patented DELTA C SHAPE concept that was developed with the BANDIT answers to all disciplines of kiteboarding. The quality of flight behavior achieved with this shape creates a kite that is both smooth and controllable, but can still pack a punch when you ask for it. It does all of this while remaining very user friendly, safe and easy to relaunch off the water. F-One takes no shortcuts when releasing a new model, testing over 70-80 prototypes over a 10 month period. Needles to say, the end result is nothing short of stunning!
